About this tour

Immerse yourself in the history of one of the largest Jewish communities in the world that have left their indelible mark on the cultural heritage of Odessa.


During the first 150 years of Odessa existence, the Jewish population made up less than 30 percent of the total number of the residents. Shalom Aleichem, Hayim Nahman Bialik, Isaac Babel, Meir Dizengoff, Mikhail Zhvanetsky and Roman Kartsev… and thousands and thousands of other representatives of this great ancient nation were making a great contribution to beatify Odessa.


Our guides would be delighted to take you on an engaging tour around the diverse monuments that make up Jewish Odessa: synagogues and prayer houses, Jewish street and Moldavanka, do shopping on the famous Privoz market, get to know the life-stories of famous Jews of Odessa.


Learn more facts about Jewish pogroms and Holocaust as well as about traditions and life of the local Jews, their music, art and architecture, listen to Odessa urban legends and enjoy local Jewish identity.



The tour is conducted in Russian.
